The Royal New Zealand Ballet presents...
The Ryman Healthcare Season of A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Thu 31 October - Sat 2 November 2024
Isaac Theatre Royal

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a co-production between the Royal New Zealand Ballet and Queensland Ballet.

“If you are going to do fairies there can be no holding back, so wunderkind English choreographer Liam Scarlett unashamedly mixes, in this sparkling new production, 110 per cent magic with a gorgeous design by Tracy Grant Lord, an intricately stitched up score of Mendelssohn’s music, courtesy of Nigel Gaynor, and a lighting design from Kendall Smith that animates the whole like an ongoing shower of fabulous fairy dust.”
— Bernadette Rae, New Zealand Herald, 2015

Following its hugely successful premiere in 2015, the Royal New Zealand Ballet is thrilled to be bringing A Midsummer Night’s Dream back for Christmas 2024.

Created for the RNZB by Liam Scarlett, A Midsummer Night’s Dream was an overnight sensation at its premiere, with capacity audiences throughout its first New Zealand tour, followed by successful performances in Hong Kong in 2016. Distinguished New Zealand designer Tracy Grant Lord created the glorious vision of Shakespeare’s iconic characters and enchanted wood, illuminated with lighting by Kendall Smith.

Don’t miss your chance to see this sparkling, spectacular ballet when it returns to Aotearoa – a wonderful treat for young and old, lovers of dance, music and sheer theatrical magic.
